Watch YouTube 1080p Video in 3D

April 6th, 2012 Posted in Industry News

On Thursday, YouTube said that all short-form videos uploaded in 1080p will be converted to 3D format automatically.  Last year, the online video website launched a beta feature that lets video creator convert their works to 3D.

“You can s

elect 3D viewing in the Quality settings (click on the gear icon) on the YouTube player, then pop on your 3D glasses and see YouTube in another dimension,” YouTube said in a blog post.

How it works?

YouTube uses such characteristics as color, spatial layout and motion to estimate a depth map for each video frame, helped by machine learning from true 3D videos, then creates stereo left-right images. Google has been able to apply its cloud computing infrastructure to apply the 3D conversion process to the breadth of videos on the site.

In order to switch over to the 3D view, users must click the gear icon in the toolbar of the video. If the video has been converted over to 3D already, an icon will appear to the left of the gear icon and switch the video to the 3D view when clicked. The user can click the 3D icon a second time to bring up a variety of viewing options.

Of course, viewers of 3D YouTube videos will need inexpensive 3D glasses or 3D capable hardware to take advantage of the new feature.
